A simple kitchen utility cart is not an expensive investment but it can be quite beneficial in a small kitchen where counter or workspace is lacking and where you could use the flexibility of a surface on wheels. Kitchen utility carts can be used for the sole purpose of storage or as a prep area. Their most beneficial characteristic is the ability to be easily moved from one area to another. You can even use your cart to serve prepared food at meals or gatherings. Such carts can be found in wood, metal or even plastic materials that are easy to keep clean but more utilitarian in appearance.
Another con is space. While it was mentioned previously that there are rolling islands, if space is at a premium, an island may just not be practical. There is nothing more frustrating to a cook than having something in the way when you are trying to prepare meals for your family, or yourself. If your kitchen is small, while you may long for extra storage space and countertop, an island might not be the best solution.
Determining how much space you have available in your kitchen for an island should be and is going to be the most important step to finding the right kitchen island cart. A kitchen island can be quite beneficial but only if you are able to accurately choose a size and style that can fit your needs as well as the amount of space or layout of your kitchen. The market is full of choices that fall anywhere between a simple cart with shelving and a surface to more elaborate designs that are custom in appearance and offer various storage and utility options.
